obama later this morning will be outlining the recommendations put forth by vice president joe biden. part of them will be some executive action. this is from our website, c- span.org. the president may also announced several executive orders which will take effect immediately to curb the violence. so, the assault weapons ban and those sorts of things need congressional approval. president obama will take some sort of executive action and we will talk about that later this morning. 11:45 a.m. eastern time as when we expect the president. look for our coverage. on coverage on the executive orders, do you support that idea by the president to do action on his own? we want to hear from you this morning. here is the arizona republic, courtesy of the newseum in washington. do you support executive action on gun-control -- on some gun- control measures? i want to know what you think about president obama using the executive order. this is from the washington post blog. the vast majority of actions he can take are relatively minor in nature, it says. it's unlikely obama can significantly al
